Sony Ericsson Satio firmware update out

The Sony Ericsson Satio smartphone may soon go back on sale, as a software issue that caused it to be pulled from store shelves in the UK may have been addressed with an update. The firmware, R1CA037, downloadable over a PC and then synchronized to the handset, is said to only work with unbranded Satio devices and not ones sold by carrier Vodafone in the UK, for example. While what the update has exactly changed, if anything, remains unknown, but the phone is said to respond much faster now.

Early handsets encountered an unknown bug that would completely shut down the phone when some apps were launched. When or if the Satio will go back on sale at UK retailers Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U remains to be seen.

Sony Ericsson has also faced a problem with the touchscreen operation of its Aino handset more recently, though it hasn't been pulled from store shelves in the UK. Only a small number of the phones are affected, Sony Ericsson says. [via JAMP]
